Fires in central Brazil

Scores of fires (red dots) were burning in central Brazil on February 10, 2003, and were detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite. At right, the Araguaia River is caught in sunglint, and appears silver amid the green vegetation.
